Don't let the name fool you! We are for any RPCV or prospective Peace Corps Volunteer and we do most meetups in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. We are also an official chapter RPCV of the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA).

This is a great and fun opportunity for RPCVs in the New York area to meet and get to know one another. We do things such as hikes, art shows, happy hours, language clubs, and volunteer projects. We also have been organizing live story telling events, where RPCVs take the stage and tell a tale of adventure to a live audience. Check out of podcast "Where there is no TP" on iTunes.

Looking forward to meeting you!
